Holocaust Memorial Day talk - Eva Clarke

Friday 25 January at 1:00 PM

The speaker at Durham Cathedral’s annual Holocaust Memorial Day talk is Eva Clarke, who was born in Mauthausen concentration camp, Austria, 29 April 1945. Join us as we explore Holocaust Memorial Day's theme for 2019, ‘Torn From Home’.  The talk will reflect on what happens when communities are driven from their homes because of persecution or genocide, alongside the difficulties survivors face in making new homes when the genocide is over. 


Eva and her mother are the only survivors of their family, 15 members of which were killed in Auschwitz-Birkenau: three of Eva's grandparents, her father, uncles, aunts and her 7-year-old cousin, Peter. Learn more about Eva's remarkable story here.

No ticket is required to attend this talk. To find our more, contact our Visitor Desk 0191 338 7178.
